I committed the perfect crime in Rust

I've been playing Rust a lot this past week, slowly building up a fortified home and learning as much as I can about the world. It's a brutal, mean place, even on a server dedicated to player vs. environment play, in that it...

What is it like to make a popular iOS game?

In my time at Destructoid I've learned quite a bit about what it takes to make a game. Typically it takes a group of dedicated people to make a large product. But what happens when the product is small? How about iOS small? It dawned on me that I had no idea so I sat down with Victoria Cheng from Storm 8 and talked about what it takes to make an iOS game for the mass market. Check it out!

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 4

Oh look, it's time for more Indigo Prophecy! This time around, we get racist in a bookstore (again), we play basketball by watching basketball and pressing buttons, we push a wheelchair, and we play Simon Says while cutscenes have all the fun.  Indigo Prophecy thrills us all.

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 3

On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens.  Also, crap stealth and some other things.

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing

I fiddle with the temperature knob and get murderous as I play Quantic Dream's true classic, Indigo Prophecy. Laugh along as we murder people in bathrooms, interrogate distraught women, and listen to music about women doin' ya wrong. Oh Theory of a Deadman. You scallywags!

Neverending Nightmares - Now Bloody Playing

Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers! Anyway, I played the demo. You can watch me play it, if you want.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire game.  I wish I could just be showing off how much fun this game is. I can't though. Now I'm sad in my face.

Alien Rage - Now Bloody Playing

In today's little carnival of misery, I try to contain my internal juices as I play Motion Sickness: The Game and fire my squirty gun at the Genericons. Yeah, Alien Rage isn't very good.  A full review is coming later today, where I further eviscerate this complete waste of time and money.

Time for some more stupid gameplay video stupidity for you to swallow into your gawking eyes. Why not watch me play Shelter for a minute? I'm going to wander around and drop onion things in front of little baby badgers.  Well then, that's fun isn't it? Yes. That's fun.
